NAME

       dose-ceve - parse package metadata

SYNOPSIS

       dose-ceve [-h] [-v] [-e pkgspec] [-c pkgspec] [-r pkgspec] [--depth=n] [-t format] [-o
       filename] input-spec

DESCRIPTION

       Dose-ceve is a generalized metadata parser. It reads package specifications, extracts
       package metadata from them, performs some manipulations, and outputs the package metadata
       in one of several formats.

OPTIONS

       -h  This option displays the help message. Can also be specified as --help.

       -v  Be verbose. This option can be repeated for more verbosity.

       -e pkgspec
           (Option Not Implemented Yet) Extract the transitive closure of packages connected (by
           conflict or dependency) to any of the packages that satisfy pkgspec. Such a package
           specification is a list of packages (separated by a semicolon), where each package is
           specified as follows: (name,version). This option can also be specified as
           --extract=pkgspec.

       -c pkgspec
           Similar to the -c option, but only uses the dependency relation to make the transitive
           closure. This option can also be specified as --cone=pkgspec.

       -r pkgspec
           Similar to the -e and -c options, but uses the reverse dependency relation to make the
           transitive closure. This option can also be specified as --rcone=pkgspec.

       --depth=n
           In combination with the -e, -c or -r options, this specifies the maximum depth for the
           transitive closure.  =item -t format

           Specifies the output format to use. Possible values are dot for a graph output in
           Dot/GraphViz format, cnf for an output in CNF format, dimacs for an output in the
           DIMACS format for CNF formulae, and cudf for a pretty-print output in an RFC 822-like
           format. This option can also be specified as --outtype=format.

       -o filename
           Instead of stdout, send output to the file filename. This option can also be specified
           as --outfile=filename.

       input-spec
           This is a URL specifying both the input format and the file to get the input from.
           Possible schemes are:

           cudf
               for cudf files

           deb for Debian package files (possibly compressed with gzip(1) or bzip2(1), depending
               on compile-time options for dose3)

           debstdin
               for Debian package files read from standard input

           eclipse
               for Eclipse (p2) package files

           pgsql
               for PostgreSQL databasess

           sqlite
               for sqlite databases

           hdlist
               for RPM hdlists

           synth
               for urpmi synthesis hdlists

           Some examples of URLs:

       deb://Packages.gz
           (the Debian file packages.gz in the current directory)

       cudf:///home/examples/cudf/test.cudf
           (the CUDF file /home/examples/cudf/test.cudf)

       psql://user@db.mancoosi.org:723/packages
           (the database packages on host db.mancoosi.org on port 723, accessed as user user)
